There are so many benefits to imaginary play in childhood. But in a world of technology and screens, it can be hard for caregivers to even find items to encourage this type of play. It’s so much easier for me to track down the latest electronic toy or device for my girls. And it’s getting harder and harder to track down quality products that encourage my girls to use their imaginations.
That is until I came across the company Great Pretenders.
Great Pretenders is a successful dress-up and costume business which manufactures award-winning toys – an innovative leader in the pretend-play market for children. They source out the best fabrics and make sure to follow strict guidelines and standards. They also participate in the #MadeInCanada movement – Over 108 of their products are made locally in their manufacturing facility in Sarnia, Ontario. Their products are also very reasonably priced, especially for the quality of their product. Plus they have free shipping on orders over $30!
Imaginary play is what they do – and they are defiantly a leader in the industry in my eyes.
Some of my favourite products from Great Pretenders:
My girls were able to try out their double sided Colour-A-Fairy Princess Cape, from their Colour-In-Collection.
On one side of the cape is the material that the girls colour, and on the other side is a beautiful teal blue silk material. The cape fits both my older girls (ages 4 and 8) perfectly.
The girls loved that they got to get really creative with the cape by colouring it themselves. As they were colouring each section, they were making up a little story that went with that section. They were so proud of their work. The fact that they were able to decorate it themselves really made it something special for them.
My girls getting creative with the Great Pretenders cape:
My oldest daughter kept saying ‘This is a one-of-a-kind cape just for us, mommy. No one else will have on like it!’
I was very impressed with this company and their products. I will most defiantly be ordering from them again in the very near future!
Enter below and you could win! The winner will receive a credit for the same amount as the cape ($28.00).
